How do you italicize and bold text?

How do we bold and italicize text?

by Anonymousreply 58Last Friday at 9:48 AM

It's best avoided,especially in OPs because people mess it up and bold or italicize the whole thread list below the post.

by Anonymousreply 104/20/2013

But could you tell me, please R1.

by Anonymousreply 204/20/2013

Third section from the end.

by Anonymousreply 304/20/2013

Lemme see if I can do it...

If you want to [i]italicize[/i], I think you have to do this [ i ] (but no spaces) right before, and then [ / i ] (no spaces) to end the italics. It might be the same with [b]bolding[/b], but make it [ b ] and [ / b ] to end it.

But I never get the quoting quite right...

Okay I was wrong. Trying again. (I'm just testing. Ignore me)

How irritating. Why can't they do it the normal way with [b] and [i]?

I believe it has been around since before there was an agreed "normal" way.

[bold][italic]bold and italic?? [/italic][/bold]

by Anonymousreply 1910/11/2015

Here is how you do it:

[bold] word [/bold] - without the spaces so it will look like this: [bold]word[/bold]

[italic] word [/italic] - without the spaces so it will look like this: [italic]word[/italic]

by Anonymousreply 2010/11/2015

Oops... okay, so it works even with spaces.

With a sharpie. Don't worry, it comes off your screen with a little alcohol.

by Anonymousreply 3309/21/2016

There's a fucking HELP link at the top of the page that gives you all this information... if you're too stupid to click it, you're too stupid to use bold and italics.

by Anonymousreply 34Last Thursday at 12:27 AM

[b*ld] use this one except replace the star with an o ... same with [/b*ld]

Then [it*lic] and [/it*lic]

Also, [qu*te] but don't use [/quote] because it doesn't work. You just hit return and the quoted text will end.
